Can decisions in relation to the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments be appealed?

Yes. In general, where competence lies with the court of appeal, an appeal may be brought before the Supreme Court of Justice. With regard to the recognition of judgments handed down in EU member states, an appeal may be brought before the court of appeal.

Can the applicant seek injunctive relief while the appeal is pending?
 
Portugal
No specific provision is made for injunctive relief where a decision to refuse recognition is being appealed. Injunctive relief, on general grounds, may be sought if the applicant can prove that the claim invoked would be clearly impaired by the decision refusing recognition.
